Someone Who Writes at Jeopardy! Seems to Really Likes Comedy Podcasts

More and more answers seem to come from someone who not only listens to comedy podcasts, but thinks that they’re culturally relevant enough to be on Jeopardy.

In its 32nd season on the air, Jeopardy! stands an television landmark and the topics, of which they derive their answers from, have a certain distinction within history and pop culture. 

Just in the past month, both the great comedy podcasts SuperegoGreg Proops’ Smartest Man in the World, and Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast  have been mentioned as answers. 

Jeopardy! mentioned @goSuperego! Amazing – well done! @MattGourley @PFTompkins @markmcconville @ShuntMcGuppin

Hey! The Smartest Man in the World @GregProops Podcast was a question on the Smartest show in the world @Jeopardy!!

Thank u to all our fans for making #GGACP a success & a question on @Jeopardy RT & SUBSCRIBE

We don’t know how rigorous the vetting process for the writing the answers that contestants have to guess the right question for, but it’s obvious that podcasts are within the zeitgeist enough and potentially have enough staying power to make into the realm of the renowned trivia show in existence.

Also, whoever came up with those questions seems to have particularly good taste in podcasts as well.

UPDATE: the someone/whoever we’re referring to appears to be Jeopardy! writer Mark Gaberman.
